    Another team Mega Milestone at our finger tips.

    Now that Eon is over 5 million what next?

    How about a little WEP M2? This one is for a 10 Million Team MM. WEP M2 is sitting less than 200K credits from reaching 10 million. Hate to see us miss this one when we are so close. WEP will reach 10 million eventually but it's RAC is low so it could be many weeks unless we give it a little spurt as it approaches the team MM.

    Getting this 10 million MM could move us into a tie for 2nd place in this category. Project Albert reached 10 Million last week, Suduko is reaching 10 Million in the next day thanks to Mumps so WEP M2 would be our third 10 million project in a short period. A big move in this category and in fact could drop SETI.Germany into 3rd. LAF is several projects further on and locked into 1st but we'll leave them for another day.

    I don't know anything about this one and though I'm not inclined to join this project I'm willing to crunch it a bit for a fellow team member trying to reach a personal MM or just encourage a few others to pop off a few credits so we can tack this onto our mantle. Just PM me you info and I'll run a few boxes under your account to help you get a personal MM.

    Info about WEP from the team front page link follows.

    Note: this shouldn't usurp any team competitions or other personal projects but just a recommendation for those looking for something different to crunch for a bit.

    Thanks.

    LoL, your funny. But in a good way....

    OK I'll give it a shot after I hit 50K on eOn. That should be in about 3 days.

    I've got an MM to make there, so I'll be gradually moving over as current tasks finish up.

    Also, looks like another job for a Gentoo Hydra.

    Why that's practically un-American. I'm not going to be much help here then at all. Not geeky enough.
    Still, would be nice if we could get this one for the team, and to screw with SG a bit.

    And, actually, it's my goal to be the first user to 10 Mil. If I accelerate on that, we should also even take the #1 position from SG.

    Re: Another team Mega Milestone at our finger tips.

    Actually, I ported the WEP app to windows a couple years ago but the project admin wasn't interested since he wants to promote Linux. So.... give out really crappy credit (even under the old credit system WEP was below average) and people will want to switch to Linux. Yep. That makes perfect sense.

    To enforce the Linux rules, the admin removed all other platforms other than Linux and OS X which means it doesn't allow Windows apps or even anonymous apps. So, the only way to use the Windows app is to change the BOINC config to pretend it is Linux. When you do that, WEP is the only project you can crunch.

    If you want to crunch it, a VM is easiest. I believe that my Windows app was better optimized, so if you want to run it on a CPU only machine and go for slightly higher (still pretty poor) credit, I could make the Windows app available -- if he hasn't changed his apps since I ported it, that is.
